The Southern Car Club, the organisers of Rallye Sunseeker 2012, have announced an exciting partnership with MIS Motorsport and Screens2Go that will see supporters able to see live footage of the February event.
MIS Motorsport, a leading global supplier of insurance products and services to the motorsport industry, is sponsoring a Screens2Go mobile TV screen. The screen will be at Scrutineering at the Bournemouth International Centre on Friday, before moving to Poole Harbour that evening to screen the Ceremonial Start live.
On Saturday, the screen will be at Somerley Park, where it will show live coverage of the two stages taking place at Somerley, with up to four cameras positioned on the stage to provide the footage. During the two days, all the footage will also be transmitted live to the Rallye Sunseeker website, allowing even more fans to watch the action.
MIS Motorsport's Chief Executive Dermot Hanafin said: “Although we are a global company, it makes sense for us to team up with Rallye Sunseeker and Screens2Go for this year's event. The rally is one of the best organised in the UK, and has a name for being well run and organised- for competitors by competitors. Our collaboration with Screens2Go means that we can help bring a new form of rally coverage, and also get our message across to everyone involved.”
Managing Director of Screens2Go, Charlie McGuckin, commented: “It's good to be coming back to Rallye Sunseeker, we were here a few years ago and it went well. We have a new smaller screen TV unit now so it means we can be mobile and access areas that we could not before. It's good that MIS Motorsport have joined us, as it means we can show to other organisers what can be achieved and how the rally, or any event for that matter can be screened back live through an event website.”
Rally Director Rick Smith added: “The whole deal came about very quickly at the Autosport Show and it's good to have Charlie back here in Bournemouth. When he was here a few years ago his service created huge interest. So with MIS Motorsport on board as a partner, it is shaping up to be a great addition for the rally. Dermot is well known in rallying and we are delighted to see him and his company join us.”
